Oops, Explorer swimming.

Title speaks for itself. Only permantent damage so far is a dent in the driver side door and I think I shorted my tranny temp gauge. Power everything is working properly, tranny shifted weird coming to a stop all the way home, but should be fine. You can see in the pics the water line on the back of the hatch area. That line crossed my open window when I went through the deep part, I definitley got wet. There is a vid but I don't know how to post them. I'll email if people are interested.

Do you have AIM? That would probably be the easiest way to send it...

Apparently I can't send it over email. I have IM, jcbyrd24 if anyone wants to try to host it.

You have some serious cojones to try that! When you finally threw in the towel, was there some colorful language? :)

I actually already deleted the full DV file because they're huge so I can't edit it anymore without recapturing the whole thing. I will IM it though.
